and oppressed. they want fairness and they want change. so what should the change president barack obama be doing for the protesters in egypt? my commentary on that coming up. and oil money trumps national security. exhibit a? the coke brothers. the battle against energy independence courtesy of the corporateists. and the line that connects the hate speech of rush limbaugh to the racist threats made against a california state senator. now there are new threats. and finally, calls to do something about it. but first, let's get the latest on the uprising in egypt from the senior producer for democracy now joining us tonight via phone from cairo, egypt. shareef good to have you with us tonight. i think what americans really want to know, is there any way mubarak is going to be able to survive this? >> well, today tens of thousands of protesters gathered in tahrir square in the third day of defiance of a military curfew and are calling on the ouster of the mubarak regime. the demands have not changed since the uprising began one week ago on january 25th. they are calling for the removal of t
but they haven't done a very good job of giving especially to american workers. today president obama went before the chamber of commerce to try to get that crowd to kind of act like patriots. commentary on that coming up. glenn beck imagines a coalition between muslim brotherhood and the american labor unions. and even some conservatives are cringing. and the super bowl, heck of a game. the messed up national anthem that has everybody talking at the water cooler. and the people who paid 200 bucks to watch the whole thing from the parking lot? that's a fan. this is the story that has me fired up to start things off tonight. american business. now here they are, they've had a heck of a run. they're sitting on $2 trillion and president obama wants them to get in the game for the american worker. sounds like the american thing to do. the president went into the lions den over at the chamber of commerce today and delivered this message very clear. >> now is the time to invest in america. today american companies have nearly $2 trillion sitting on their balance sheets and i know that many of you have
this country should go egypt on president obama in the next election? okay, rush. we'll hold you to that. and governor haley barbour won't take a stand against a proposal for a state license plate honoring a confederate leader who was the grand wizard of the ku klux klan. this is the story that has me fired up tonight. in my heart, there's no bigger story in america. for middle class americans, there is no bigger story than what is unfolding in wisconsin because other states will follow. the turnout today was fantastic. on the grounds of the state capitol in madison, wisconsin. today the crowd is fighting governor scott walker's attempt to bust unions and take their hard earned money. that's the bottom line. "the wisconsin state journal" reported more than 10,000 protesters gathered on the south side of the capitol building many carrying signs and chanting "recall walker." well, in many ways, this is the american version of what we saw in egypt when it comes to crowds isn't it? workers are taking it to the streets, calling for the ouster of a politically elected leader who is taking mone
the rest of his term. mubarak's announcements came after president obama publicly urged the egyptian leader not to run for another term. president obama addressed the situation in egypt after mubarak spoke. he said, an orderly transition must begin now. >> now, it is not the role of any other country to determine egypt's leaders. only the egyptian people can do that. what is clear, and what i indicated tonight to president mubarak, is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful. it must be peaceful. and it must begin now. >> and at this hour it's unclear how long the egyptian protests will continue but the reverb rations of this uprising are being felt throughout the middle east and the rest of the world. after weeks of protests in jordan, over the price of food and other issues, king abdula fired his government earlier today. abdula has changed his government in the past but this time is the first time he's done it in response to public demand. for all of the latest, joining us now from cairo is a contributor to "foreign affairs" magazine. thanks for your time tonight. in the w
lukewarm in my opinion. the only statement president obama has made on this story was eight days ago when he spoke to a local nbc affiliate in milwaukee. >> i would say as a general proposition that everybody's got to make some adjustments to new fiscal realities. on the other hand, some of what i've heard coming out of wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions. and i think it's very important for us to understand that public employees, they're our neighbors. they're our friends. >> okay. okay. good. but we need a little bit more. the president has let that sound bite stand on its own for over a week. in the past eight days this story has completely changed, intensified, and evolved. one week ago today the wisconsin 14 left the state to block the governor from getting his way on the bill. on saturday over 80,000 people filled the capitol grounds in madison and governor walker rejected an offer from all the wisconsin public employee unions that would have given him the money that he was aski

's not on his radar screen. president obama is sitting in the white house, because hard working union folk like the ones in madison went door to door, made phone calls, social networked to get him elected. these people need the president to some parroting the right wing talking points and make what i would say an unequivocal stand for the rights of these workers. this is what the democratic party is about. president obama isn't the only one dropping the ball on this story. democratic leadership has been dreadfully silent. we reached out to senators who got a lot of labor in their states, like senator reid in nevada. there, of course, is a proposal there to knock off minimum wage. senator durbin in illinois. senator schumer here in new york. st stabinow didn't respond. can we wake them up tonight that this is the blueprint for them to take down the infrastructure of the very people that support all of you in your campaigns to keep the progressive agenda alive in this country? we also reached out to nancy pelosi. shockingly, she had nothing. may i say tonight that i find this absolutely unaccepta

and president obama's statement yesterday that action should be taken now, and of course, today white house press secretary robert gibbs said now was yesterday. how is this all being received by the people? how is the united states being viewed in all of this? >> reporter: well, a couple of things. since cairo's a different city today than it was yesterday, yesterday everyone in cairo wanted to be on camera. today they wanted our cameras. the population that we come in contact with down in the square had changed. the entire story line changed. we were seeing, through the help of people who speak the language said u.s. stay out of egypt. tougher language than that. some of the protesters showing the faces of our last five american presidents making the point that these were mubarak friends, sponsors, helped to prop him up. and it was getting a little more vehement. the pro-democracy protesters who filled this square wanted one thing, they wanted a full-on barack obama endorsement. they wanted to hear barack obama tell hosni mubarak the time to go was yesterday. and of course, diplomacy being

to be tolerant and did appear on the surface to be a country of moderation. let's not forget obama came here and gave a speech to the muslim world from cairo, because it represents so many values that american likes to tout and its allies. but i think what it comings down to is when push came to shove, this government, i believe, showed its intolerance towards anything that may reflect negatively on its own image, regardless of actually that it did in the end only hurt itself more by cracking down on these journalists, of course. but you have to understand, a lot of foreign journalists have left because of this. and i don't think right now it's about pr'ing and public relations and making themselves look great. i think right now they are thinking of survival. >> okay. thinking of survival, but obviously trying to move forward. and there's potentially a deal being brokered tonight with the white house and egyptian officials that mubarak would step down and omar suleiman would turn in as the president. he would take over the transitional government. how do you think that would be received by t
